If not everyone, most of you have already seen a Jaguar E-Type painted with the Union Jack scheme in the 1999 film “Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me” In 1999, the Jaguar E-Type, even those belonging to the first series, had prices far from the current ones: today thinking of painting an E-Type in… Read More Groovy roadster: 1965 Jaguar E-Type OTS
Undisturbed actually seems to be the right word: this first series E-Type seems to have been completely forgotten for decades, luckily somewhere indoors. In fact, this car probably comes from some place with a non-dry climate: this is what the traces of moss on the trunk floor tell us. Certainly though, if it had been… Read More Undisturbed: 1962 Jaguar E-Type Coupé
If we find a rare classic car, it is very likely that it will be published by us: let alone a car produced in a single specimen. In this particular case, as has often happened, the manufacturer and coachbuilder have different nationalities: the first is Jaguar, a brand that needs no introduction, the second is… Read More One off cat: 1952 Jaguar XK 120 Roadster by Beutler
This E-type has been stored for ten years and in all this time it has never been covered by a sheet: in theory this is not correct but on the other hand now the car has the classic patina of the barn find. The car has a beautiful color (Opalescent Silver Blue) and beautiful blue… Read More Blue sleeper: 1966 Jaguar E-Type 2+2
We have already seen so many Jaguar e-types, but every now and then – very rarely – a very special one emerges from the darkness. This is the case of this OTS (Open Two Seater), one of the very first produced by the Coventry factory, which has very special characteristics, although to the majority they… Read More Details matter: 1961 Jaguar E-Type O.T.S.
If you think that the barn finds are found only in the US, you are wrong, and this auction is proof of this. There is in fact a collection of 81 cars (none in good condition, some in desperate conditions) that will be auctioned (also online) tomorrow by a french auction house that we did not… Read More The sunday auction: 81 barn finds
Another E-Type Jaguar? Why not? In the end it is an icon of the automotive industry and, last but not least, it is beautiful. But if the E-Type roadster looks beautiful in picture you should see one live: now we know that it is very rare to spot one in the wild but it is… Read More Unknown issue: 1965 Jaguar E-Type 4.2 O.T.S.
We have seen cars to be restored in any conditions, but it is the first time we see one that recalls the appearance of Tutankhamun’s mummy when Howard Carter took it out of his sarcophagus. Maybe that’s because of the black paint dried (and cracked) under the sun of California, and perhaps also because the… Read More The mummy: 1969 Jaguar E-Type O.T.S.
It is becoming increasingly rare (as with all classic cars) to find an E-Type first series that has survived the passing of time and the rearrangements of previous owners. This seems to be one of those survivors. The seller says that this car has belonged to a lady since 1992, is a self-matching numbers, still… Read More Same lady since ’92: 1963 Jaguar E-Type 3.8 FHC
This barn find E-Type is a bit different from many others being sold on the market in the same conditions: other than being one of the “flat floor” series cars, this is a very early car with the bonnet louvers welded (instead of being part of the bonnet itself). We all know that some details… Read More Welded louvers: 1961 Jaguar E-Type O.T.S.
